    " When you use very heavy weights for a partial, you stimulate your central nervous system to recruit more muscle fibers. This then “convinces” your body that you’re actually stronger, and you’ll find that you can handle heavier weights when you go back to using a full range of motion."

    I think 80% of the people at my gym must be trying to fool their bodies into thinking they are stronger then they actually are with partial reps. Lol. Ok ok I'll stop walking by them shouting "NOT ONE REP DONE TODAY"

    i actually agree with this! My buddy has 57 lbs of muscle on him since the time he started working out, he's one of the strongest guys in the gym, he's a military trained security guard at a nuclear power plant ,and he while he was in the police academy, he completed the fitness test in 4 minutes (Average is about 7.5 min). I've never seen him do more than a quarter or half rep on anything and this guy could beat the ever living s*** out of almost everyone I know. So there's proof it works!
